Oh my brave little adventurer....


I have become rather obsessed with Hello by Adele.  As you read this, it's probably playing on repeat from my computer.  It's not just the song, but the cinematography of the music video that has enthralled me.  Xavier Dolan and Andr√© Turpin have created a beautiful video rich in texture and metaphor.  The rack focus sequence in the beginning always gives me chills. Shooting past a multitude of objects including my binder, phone charger, phone, and computer, I tried to recreate the feeling of the video.  And it wouldn't be complete without an ambiguously emotional stare.
